This is cause for alarm.

Because moments ago, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance the so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and it could be scheduled for a vote by the full Senate in the coming days.

Last week, former Georgia Republican Attorney General Michael Bowers held a press conference to voice his absolute opposition for this bill which he says is “unequivocally an excuse to discriminate.” Now it’s the Senate’s turn to weigh in.

A vote from the full Senate could occur in just a few days, so we need you to reach out to your legislators now urge them to vote against this “license to discriminate” law before it’s too late! Click here to tell your Senator to stand on the right side of history.

Bowers argues that “the proposed RFRA is nothing more than an effort to legalize discrimination against disfavored groups.”

As the state’s former chief law enforcement officer, we should take his critiques seriously.

To Bowers, there’s no doubt in his mind the real motivation behind this bill—”to legalize discrimination against disfavored groups.”

The question is—is that really the road we want to go down in Georgia?

It’s not too late to speak out and stop this bill before it harms the families who call our state home. We were able to defeat this mean-spirited and harmful legislation last year. Let’s work together and nip this bill in the bud once and for all.

The clock is ticking and your Senator needs to hear from you. Click here to take a stand against discrimination in Georgia.

We were so grateful to be able to profile Rachel last year. Her story is inspiring and it's sad to see her treated unfairly. Thank you Rachel for standing up for yourself! bit.ly/2VTK7j3
